Sawuchay, pronounced SA – WOO – CHAY, is a Hertfordshire based artisan sauce company. All the sauces are handmade with all natural ingredients in our artisan kitchen (micro-saucery) in Welwyn, Hertfordshire. The name was created in memory of our founder, James, grandparents, who were from Cyprus, as they pronounced “sauce” as sawuchay.
Starting in our home kitchen, Sawuchay sauces were cooked in very small batches and sold at Hertfordshire farmers markets and to local farm shops and butchers. Sourcing the finest fresh ingredients from New Spitalfield Market for our sauces, labelling the bottles by hand and personally delivering the sauces to our local partners, Sawuchay is a fully artisan company.
If you would like to try our sauces then head over to our shop on our website or visit one of our stockists, using the interactive map on our stockists page to see where is closest to you.

"When it comes to the land, we must radically reduce the area we use to farm, so that we can make space for returning wilderness. And the quickest and most effective way to do this is for us to change our diet.
Large carnivores are rare in nature because it takes a lot of prey to support each of them. For every single predator on the Serengeti, there are more than 100 prey animals. Whenever we choose a piece of meat, we too are unwittingly demanding a huge expanse of space.
The planet can’t support billions of large meat eaters, there just isn’t the space. If we all have a largely plant based diet, we would need only half the land we use at the moment. And because we would then be dedicated to raising plants, we could increase the yield of this land substantially. "
